Full-Length Album, Originally Released 2018
All words and music written, performed, recorded, mixed, mastered, and produced by Emilie Autumn in The Asylum.
A Word from EA:
Introducing The Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls: Behind the Musical! A new collection of music is blasting through the bars of our sharply spiked gates, and I couldn't be more excited for you to hear it.
But, what does 'behind the musical' mean, you may fairly ask?
It means that I have decided to share with you what really goes into the making of a Broadway-bound show. Before the world-class actors and singers are brought on board, songs are given to them to learn and practice with. And who sings those songs? You know the answer to that one!
As on the Fight Like A Girl album which contained several numbers from the Asylum Musical, I sing and record all roles myself to show our ultimate performers their job. Someone does this for just about every musical, but those recordings rarely see the light of day, nor do they reach the ears of the audience who only knows the music once the show opens.
But YOU! You will know, well, not everything (the show is 2.5 hours long and I've got to hold back *some* surprises!), but quite a lot indeed, for this new album gives you 10 songs, a few of which I will of course be singing in the show (those featuring Emilie/Emily), but also songs to be sung by Madam Mournington, Sir Edward and his League of Asylum Plague Rats, Thomson, Veronica and her fellow Inmates, the Captain, Dr. Sharp, AND Dr. Stockill himself, heard here for the very first time!
Why am I sharing this with you? Because I think there will always be something very special about these first versions done on my own, for, no matter how the Asylum grows, how far the Plague spreads, this is where it will always begin, in its purest form, just me, in a tiny room, in the dark, with the friends (and enemies whom are still my friends) inside my mind coming to life through my one small voice, because they desperately want to speak to YOU.

Good direction to take. I like musicals. I came to Emilie through her classical pieces, lady is a madwoman shredder on that thing! Could be fleshed out a bit more with a few more tracks, only because I'm a fiend, keep up the good work!!
I love this album! I'm so excited for the musical!
This has been a treasure to listen to over and over again! Both my husband and I love it just as much as every other treasure Emilie has created. <3
